A Library Journal  Selection for Best Women's Fiction of 2012

One of only two survivors of a plane crash, Nell Slattery wakes in the hospital with no memory of the horrific experience-or who she is, or was. Now she must piece together both body and mind, with the help of family and friends, who have their own agendas. She filters through photos, art, music, and stories, hoping something will jog her memory, and soon, in tiny bits and pieces, Nell starts remembering. . . .

It isn't long before she learns to question the stories presented by her mother, her sister and business partner, and her husband. In the end, she will discover that forgiving betrayals small and large will be the only true path to healing herself-and to finding happiness.

What would it be like to have no memory of your entire life, forcing you to be dependent on what people told you was the truth? Unfortunately, despite this very promising premise, I felt that this book fell a bit flat. The main character's family and husband were very unlikeable and my frustration with them kept me from really enjoying the book.

A good beach read, but not great.....

The start of this book is promising but the end becomes too self-obsessed and indulgent. I was disappointed to find it typically "chick lit" with a character that supposedly has an epiphany but leaves the reader bored.
